Brigid's Eve

 

Brigid,
You are a woman of peace.
You bring harmony where there is conflict.
You bring light to the darkness.
You bring hope to the downcast.
May the mantle of your peace cover those who are troubled and anxious,
And may peace be firmly rooted in our hearts and in our world.
Inspire us to act justly and to reverence all Goddess has made.
Brigid, you are a voice for the wounded and the weary.
Strengthen what is weak within us,
Calm us into a quietness that heals and listens.
May we grow each day into greater wholeness in mind, body, and spirit.
 
Adapted from a Prayer to St. Brighid
Solas Bhríde Community, Kildare, 1997

Blessings on Her Feast Day

 

December 12th is the Feast day of Our Lady of Guadalupe, whom many believe evolved from the ancient Goddess Tonantzin, (Mother Earth) of the Nahuan.
 
"Am I not here, who is your Mother?
Are you not under my protection?
Am I not your health?
Are you not happily within my fold?
What else do you wish?
Do not grieve nor be disturbed by anything."
